.  Washington Women in Trades 2nd calendar. 

To commemorate our 30th year, Washington Women in Trades celebrated the past, present, and future tradeswoman.

First, we can never, of course, forget the Rosies, the women who started it all and made the world realize that women can not only do, but excel at trades work.
Second, our present-day tradeswomen represent an incredible spirit, pride, and drive. Many of them began working in the 70’s when there were few women in the workforce. Strong, independent and confident, they are artists, grandmothers, motorcyclists, gardeners, athletes and mothers.
Finally, the apprentices and future tradeswomen are enthusiastic and inspiring, brand new to the trades, but with big plans for their futures.
What may be surprising to those who don’t know women who work in non-traditional careers, is that these women made (and continue to make) conscious decisions toward the trades as a career path. Their choices aren’t by chance or default. And because of this personal commitment, they’re really good at what they do.

So to all, past, present and future:  We applaud you!
